Defects in weldments in general can be classified as follows:

I. Defects involving inadequate bonding

  • Lack of fusion
  • Incomplete penetration

 


II. Foreign inclusions

  • Slag
  • Oxide films
  • Tungsten

 


III. Geometric Defects

  • Undercut
  • Excessive reinforcement
  • Burn through or excessivepenetration
  • Distortion
